Immediate Implant with Nobel “Speedy Groovy™”
The immediate difference is in the GROOVEs
teeth are an important part of your personal appearance and
lifestyle. Your beautiful smile enhances your overall presence,
and healthy teeth allow you to eat and speak with confidence.
Healthy teeth are not something to be taken
for granted. Cavities, gum disease, and accidents are everyday
occurrences that can lead to the loss of teeth. The loss of
one tooth or several teeth can compromise your eating habits,
speech, and appearance. In addition, when a tooth is lost,
the bone that surrounds the tooth root can deteriorate affecting
your appearance and bite.
Fortunately, now, our latest immediate “Speedy
Groovy™” implants have offered a solution for not only
immediately replacing your teeth. These new Dental implants
provide a stable foundation for a tooth replacement that looks,
feels, and functions like your natural teeth immediately.
Recently, much has been done on placing implants, loading
them almost immediately, and then delivering replacement teeth
within a few DAYS!
Thanks to Groovy™ – our new and unique
grooved threads implant. Since bone forms more rapidly in
the grooves, the GroovyTM implants integrate faster than another
implants and are indicated whenever immediate or early loading
is applied. The Groovy implants are preferred over models
without the groove in soft bone indications.
• Bone forms preferentially within the grooves, compared to
other parts of the implant
• Enhanced osseoconductive properties of the grooves and a
guiding effect on bone forming cells
• Up to 30% increase in stability from mechanical interlock
created by bone formation within the groove
What’s new in Groovy™?
|Grooves on all our implants You
will now have the grooves on the threads of all our implants
and on the collars, where appropriate.
|Groovy on the collar too
With research showing that bone loves bonding with grooves,
we have extended them to the collar of most new implants so
• Increase surface area
• Increase area for bone-to-implant contact
|TiUnite is the most significant
breakthrough in Osseointegration today. The unique
oxidized surface unites the biocompatibility of commercially
pure titanium with an enhanced oxide surface and an optimized
texture. TiUnite incorporates a multifaceted approach to influence
the complex biological events that make osseointegration possible.
Upon insertion, the early bone healing phase is enhanced by
the textured titanium oxide surface.
|Textured surfaces are
known to accelerate the initial healing phase through absorption
of protein, the accumulation and activation of platelets, fibrin
retention, and consequently an increased amount of surrounding
|TiUnite™ - now 'all
the way up'
Our unique implant surface, TiUnite®, is a biomaterial with
better ability to maintain primary stability than machined surface
implants, while shortening healing times. Numerous studies have
revealed that TiUnite® enhances the rate of osseointegration,
which supports Immediate Function™ and makes it possible
for a wider range of indications. The surface roughness has
been increased, giving the fixture optimal surface texture with
an enlarged surface area.
|The surface texture was
achieved by increasing the thickness of the titanium oxide layer.
The unique combination of controlled oxide texture and porosity
will aid in the ability to absorb proteins from the patient's
blood for optimal biologic effect.
|As a result, dental implants
may be just the immediate tooth replacement solution you are
Step by Step
The course of treatment described here is one
of several options available. Consult Our implant dentists to
find out what the best solution is for you, given your specific
|1: Before the procedure
Our implant dentist makes a first examination
and takes one or more x-rays of the area to prepare
for the procedure.
|2: Installing the implant
The implant is installed. At this time, if your bone
is good, a temporary tooth is provided that allows you
eat and function like normal almost immediately. The
implant will need a few months to integrate with the
jawbone before the next step is taken.
|3: Attaching the new crown
The final step is the placement of the permanent ceramic
tooth. The new tooth is installed for life. No additional
treatment is needed.
|4: End result
You should expect the new tooth to fit and function
just like a natural tooth. Do your usual dental hygiene
to keep the tooth and gum around it clean and healthy.
